A Little About Me
My name is Jen Brandel and I began my career teaching first grade in Lester Prairie, and aside from one year teaching second grade, that's where I have stayed!  I earned my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education from the University of Wisconsin- River Falls and later got my Master's Degree and Reading Specialist licensure from Concordia University- St. Paul.  I love that our school feels like family, and I am grateful to work with amazing colleagues, students, and parents!

I live in Cokato, and my family enjoys attending (and playing in) many sporting events, going camping, spending time at our family cabin up North, taking summer road trips, and cheering for the Twins, Timberwolves, Johnnies, and of course, the Bulldogs!  I love to read, go for walks, play volleyball, travel, take photos, and spend time with friends and family.  

Great communication is so important for your child's success! Please don't hesitate to contact me at:
